About the Demographic Information
The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Old Chester Road, Birkenhead, CH42 3XF is based on the last census performed in the UK in 2011. They are performed once every 10 years. Please note: census information may include figures for adjacent streets and postcodes. The figures are therefore representative of the local area, not a specific street address or row of houses. The census collection is designed so that each group of postcodes should contain at least 100 people (50 in Scotland). This is done to preserve the anonymity of the people in that area, as some postcodes cover a very small area, sometimes a single building. You can see the area covered by the census statistics by clicking "Show Census Area Covered" below the map above.

Gender Embed This Back to Top
Across the UK as a whole, the gender split is roughly 49% male, 51% female. This part of the Rock Ferry ward however contains significantly more women than average (57%). This can be caused by a number of factors, but amongst the most common are large establishments such as boarding schools and convents, and areas with older populations.
Females on average live longer than males, so are more likely to be found in retirement areas. In general, as people age they move away from city centre addresses to suburbs, smaller towns and rural locations, so these areas often show a greater number of females, with inner city areas showing the opposite trend.
Age Groups Embed This Back to Top
Across the UK as a whole, the median age is 39. In general, inner city areas show high concentrations of people aged 18-30, suburbs show larger numbers of small children and adults aged 30-50, and rural and small towns are more popular with older workers and retirees. Many poorer areas lack a majority age group, which is due in part to the people in that area being constrained by circumstance rather than being able to choose where to retire, raise a family or grow up.

Figures for relationship status do not include those aged under 16, or those family members aged 16-18 who are in full-time education.
